GNOIF: Danger! GNOIF! Danger! — The Recap

by A.J. Coltrane

GNOIF #11 recap — Danger! GNOIF! Danger!  (Danger theme.)

Games That Got Played:  Bang!, Forbidden Island, Guillotine, Poo!

Games That Didn’t Get Played:  DeadFellas, Last Night On Earth, Mystery of the Abbey, Nuclear War, Small World, Stop Thief

We got a bit of a late start due to the Seahawks game, and we’d started “celebrating” well before GNOIF commenced. The games played were mostly the simpler, faster, social-oriented games that most everyone had played at least once or twice. Coincidence? I doubt it.

One table alternated games of Poo and Forbidden Island. Table two had a couple of big games of Bang followed by a few games of Guillotine. We had vaguely more players than seats at the tables, so people swapped in and out — it left plenty of time to circulate and hit the buffet. (Like I said, it was that kind of evening.)

We wrapped it up by putting the 9v battery into the controller of Stop Thief. We didn’t play, but it gave everyone a chance to see how the game worked and attempt some arrests. Definitely some 80’s flashbacks, and by 80’s I mean 1980. There are some pictures of the controller and box now floating around on Facebook.

Good times. Thanks to everyone who played.
